And Charlie!

Our sweet roly poly boy finally arrived at just 15 minutes shy of 41 weeks on April 4th and weighed 9 pounds and 2 ounces. The labor was as lovely as labor can be – six hours in total, four of those active, two pretty intense, and just five minutes of pushing. (God even hooked me up with a rainy night and flowers!) My husband is my hero, my children are the sweetest of sweet peas, and I am one happy, blessed mama. Thank you all so much for your prayers!


With so much love and gratitude!

Well, if all the facebook pictures didn’t do me in, this post probably just did.
Little Charlie might just end up being responsible for Hahn baby #4 (only kidding a little).

Seriously, the cuteness is out of this world!!!
